Daniel Sturridge was given a rare start as Liverpool took on Huddersfield, searching for a win that would pile the pressure on Premier League title rivals Manchester City.
Sturridge was making his first start in the top-flight at Anfield since November 2017 and his first in any competition for the Reds since their FA Cup defeat to Wolves on January 7.
As Liverpool looked to, at least temporarily, go back to the top of the table, Press Association Sport assesses the contribution of the England striker.
On a blustery night in the north-west, shooting was more of a challenge than it appeared. Sturridge’s first sniff at goal after an anonymous opening half an hour saw him collect the ball and move it on to his preferred left foot before firing over from 25 yards. Sturridge had the ball in the back of the net in front of the Kop end after 54 minutes, getting the final touch to Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross from the right, but the 29-year-old’s night was summed up when the assistant referee’s flag went up for offside.
